Parents’ Voice was established in 2009 and has consistently campaigned for a local community secondary school in this community. We want a high quality, secular and genuinely comprehensive state secondary school that our children can walk to with the friends they made at primary school, ending the breakup of community and friendships as our children are currently scattered across more than 20 secondary schools. Many families move out of our community altogether in search of quality secondary education or if they can afford it, send their children to one of the many private schools that exist in Bristol.
Russell Education Trust has been established by Education London (EL), one of the country's leading school improvement companies, in partnership with a number of outstanding schools and recognised education leaders at national level. EL works with schools and academies nationwide as part of wider LA and DfE programmes, to raise standards and improve learner outcomes. Its clients range from highly effective organisations to those requiring intensive support. EL is working with a small number of groups in different parts of the country which are setting up new schools. As an experienced school improvement and project management provider we are ideally placed to ensure that new schools get off to a flying start.
